How To Make Buffalo Chicken Wings In The Air Fryer

Before you start cooking anything, make sure to spray the air fryer basket with a non-stick cooking spray of your choice.

Then, take the chicken wings and lay them out into a single layer in the air fryer basket.

Cook the wings in the air fryer at 390F for 10 minutes for thawed chicken wings (or 15 minutes for frozen chicken wings).

Once the first round of cooking is done, remove the basket from the air fryer. Sprinkle the wings with salt and pepper on top and brush the top side with buffalo sauce.

Place the basket back into the air fryer and cook at 390F for another 5 minutes.

Remove the basket from the air fryer again and flip the chicken wings over. Sprinkle this side with salt and pepper and brush with buffalo sauce.

Return the basket to the air fryer once more and cook at 390F for 5 minutes till the wings are golden brown.

Remove the buffalo wings from the air fryer and serve with additional buffalo sauce for dipping.

Enjoy!
